Foursquare Tips

  • The bread pudding is excellent!
  • The food is good but not great. Service is average. The noise including children crying is energetic. Some of the customers are really crazy and some busboys don't know private space.
  • Try the Breakfast Pizza With Egg And Anchovies - I think the flavors worked, the addition of the anchovies gave it the right balance and the eggs were phenomenal!
  • Save your money eat downstairs. The food is actually better!
  • Small party <3? Sit at the upstairs kitchen bar. So. Much. Fun.
  • Covered, heated outdoor seating downstairs at the caf. No wifi.
  • The restaurant will host a series of truffle dinners November 15 through November 19 featuring carne cruda of Magruder beef ricotta salata and shaved, truffled egg yolk, and more.
  • Try the Bittersweet Chocolate Cake - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Pan Roasted Salmon - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Red Winter Wheat Penne Alla Bolognese - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Little Gem salad - (via @Foodspotting)
  • I was disappointed. Yes the wine pours were huge, but the vibe was weird and the food was average. For the cost, I'd rather eat my own attempts to make Italian food. The staff are nice though.
  • Upstairs is VERY NICE1
  • Oliveto provides exceptional Italian fare. The chef prepares unique menus based on the seasons. Truffle dinner is their best offering. The truffles are finely shaved by the ounce over fresh pasta.
  • Try the Pizza -
  • Great cod pannini.
  • Try the Paccheri
  • The little gem salad is a nice addition. I wish they would return to a wood burning stove downstairs......
  • Try the Breakfast Pizza With Farm Egg And Pancetta - One egg is not enough to cover this pizza...easily enough for two (or a very hungry person).
  • We go specifically for the mimosas and 2 egg, pancetta breakfast pizza before 10am. Highly enjoyable. We always seem to get the same table= coincidence. Service always ,always disappoints though.
